What is this book about?
Search and rescue pilot Kacey Fairing is home on leave in Mercy Falls, Montana, twelve years after she joined the military to escape the mistakes of her past. With a job waiting for her as the new lead pilot of Peak Rescue in Glacier National Park, Kacey hopes to reconnect with the now-teenage daughter she sees only between deployments. What she doesn’t realize is that someone else is also back in town.
Ben King has been building his country music career since the day Kacey shut him out of her life. Now all of that’s on hold when his injured father calls him home to help run Peak Rescue until he’s fully recovered. It doesn’t take long, though, to discover his father’s ulterior motives as Kacey Fairing walks into the house and back into his heart.
With Mercy Falls in a state of emergency due to flash floods, Kacey and Ben are forced to work together to save lives. But when floodwaters turn personal, can they put aside the past to save their future?
This was definitely a page turning adventure. The characters were flawed and the inspirational thread was well woven through.
I liked Kacey and felt for her struggles with her military service. Unfortunately, beyond that, I just could not connect to either her or Ben. I’m not quite sure why although there were quite a few times when I felt like both of them were more focused on themselves than they should have been. I also found myself getting lost in the number of characters throughout the book.
What saved the story for me was the amount of suspenseful moments throughout and the secondary storyline with Sierra and Ian. I found myself skimming the pages with Kacey and Ben just so I could get to the interactions with them. Their story is also not concluded in this book so in that respect the story is a cliffhanger.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
The secondary story with Ian and Sierra.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Too many characters.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes, particularly if you are interested in reading the series. There are parts of this story that will be continuing in the next book. This is the first book in the series.
I received this book complimentary in a giveaway. I was not required to give a review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are honest and my own.
